Sigh...

The trigger guard didn't come out well.  The scale of the gun is just too small. The trouble is where your fingers would end up, directly under the end of the cylinder.  That is not a good place to have your hand with a BP revolver.  If you look at the small 36 model the cylinder is quite a bit forward.

But I still love my 31 Remington.  Its grown on me a lot more as I've had time to shoot it.  Its certainly cheap shooting with those tiny 10-12 g loads of 4F.

I do find myself wanting that police model to play with.

G dog, that nickle-plated gun that you liked from that book (pictured in your post on the first page of this thread-) is a Remington New Model Police (you can see one here, although Cherry's incorrectly lists it as a Pocket Model - they were sold both as a .36 percussion model as well as a .38 rimfire model)! Oddly enough though, it had all the screws on the "wrong" side of the frame as compared to a 1858 NMA, or even a 1873! Neat guns though!
